Designed by DP Architects Pte Ltd, the 11-storey building reflects the Centre’s position as a hub for the preservation and furthering of Chinese Singaporean culture and tradition. The Centre’s modern facade and interior draws from conventional Chinese landscape painting and garden design. Structurally, the building is modelled after the traditional three-tier hierarchical building division—it has an ‘urban living room’ base, a body where its facilities and carpark are housed; and a glass-box crown to connect the building with the sky.
Dashes of gold and red accent the neutral tone of the interior, marrying minimalist palettes with traditional Chinese design colour choices. Portal frames resembling Chinese doorways were installed to fulfil spatial separation requirements, and Chinese decorative elements such as the capping (瓦当), ceiling, and panels serve as final touches to the overall design. Within the Centre, there are several spaces available to hold arts and cultural activities as well as offer venues for hire. Find out how you can host your next event at the SCCC.
